Looking for the Highest Quality Advanced Veterinary Care in Manhattan? For Routine and Urgent Care Alike, Visit The Pet Vet

We know that your pet is more than just an animal — they’re family. And if you have a furry family member in your life, it’s your responsibility to make sure they are getting the high-quality medical care that they need. All pets need regular wellness checks from their veterinarian. During these standard visits, our knowledgeable veterinarians perform exams to monitor your pet’s health and will get to know and form a relationship with your pet. We believe that fostering a strong relationship with you and your pet alike is the best way to ensure excellent care.

We at The Pet Vet in Manhattan pride ourselves on providing the best veterinary care around that’s both convenient and affordable for you. Our pet drop-offs allow you to continue about your day while your pet is taken care of, our Vitus Vet app makes it easy for you to stay up to date on your pet’s care, and all of our pricing packages are posted online. We treat all pets like they’re our own because when you bring your little loved one to us, they become part of The Pet Vet family! Whether they are completely healthy and just need vaccinations or are sick and injured, our veterinarians are always here for you and your pet.

About The Pet Vet’s Services in Manhattan

We are a full-service veterinary office and urgent care, which means you have access to a full range of care seven days a week – even on Sundays – without the exorbitant fees an emergency vet would charge. Some of the typical services you can expect your pet to receive at The Pet Vet are:

General Wellness Exams

Regular wellness exams are absolutely necessary to keep your pet healthy and happy. They provide us with a baseline for your pet’s health in case something ever comes up, and they allow us to establish a relationship with your pet so that they don’t have to fear going to the vet’s office. At your pet’s general wellness exam, in addition to all of the normal, annual checks, we also offer screenings for heartworm, flea, and tick-borne diseases, as well as preventative products to keep your pet safe from these year-round.


There’s no avoiding the fact that pets do have the tendency to run away every once in a while, leaving us concerned and anxious to get them back. Microchipping will greatly expedite this process as a one-time, permanent form of pet identification. The microchipping will allow whoever finds your pet to easily contact you and reunite the two of you. We offer it for only $30 with no additional activation, annual, or registration fees!

Dental Work

Your pets need their teeth cleaned just as we do. We know that it can be challenging to clean animals’ teeth, and therefore we offer complete surgical exams, cleanings, pre-anesthetic bloodwork, and more. All of our pricing is included online and shown to you ahead of time, so you never have to worry about a surprise bill. All of our dental exams include doctor observation, IV catheter, supportive fluid administration, and post-op technician.

Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is a noninvasive procedure that uses light to increase and stimulate cell regeneration. Laser therapy can help with both minor and chronic injuries, and we strongly advise the procedure for your pets post-surgery, as it can dramatically speed up the healing process. We strive to provide the best care for your pet before, during, and after surgery, and that’s why we’re so proud to offer laser therapy at our Manhattan location.

Why Choose The Pet Vet in Manhattan

At The Pet Vet in Manhattan, we treat all of our furry patients as if they’re our own and love welcoming new patients into the Pet Vet family. We strive to always provide the highest quality, most affordable care to you. We are open late into the evening during the week and are even open on Sundays, making it convenient for you to get your pet taken care of before you start your workweek or whenever works for you.

Chief of Staff Veterinarian

Trisha Kvasnica, D.V.M.

After graduating from Kansas State University in 2000, Dr. Kvasnica practiced in Kansas City and Dallas, TX for 5 years before moving back to her favorite place in the world, Manhappiness, KS. After working in local private practice for several years, she felt called to stay home with her growing family and homeschool them for several years until the children were all school-age. The family then decided to send the kids to school as Dr. K missed practicing (especially doing surgery!) She then worked part-time at a local clinic, volunteered at the local animal shelter where she taught vet students basic surgical skills, and established a house call service for routine care and home euthanasia. When not loving on people’s pets or her children, she can be found in her vehicle, rocking the taxi-mom look.


Julie Frese, D.V.M.

Dr. Frese is a KSU Veterinary graduate who has enjoyed practicing small animal medicine in both Kansas and Nebraska.  Her favorite thing about veterinary medicine is keeping pets healthy so that their families can enjoy that special bond with them for as long as possible. She and her veterinarian husband are blessed with a houseful of kids (3), cats (3),dogs (2), and an assortment of other animals both large and small.
